North 42 Degrees Estate Winery Gamay Noir, 2019 VQA

This 2019 Gamay is fresh, light bodied and oooh so cherry. It’s reminiscent of a Beaujolais nouveau and is the go-to wine for patio fare.  Serve slightly chilled for a refreshing red on a hot day.  Pairing:  charcuteries, appetizers, barbeque and friends on the patio.
